Dart’s Past, Present, and Future

Welcome to the first December episode of CompuCast!

We have prepared for you a questionable news segment, followed by our main feature. There, Stan interviews Dan Grove and Kasper Lund about the past, present, and future of the Dart programming language. Of course, Compucast wouldn’t be the same without the monthly joke, which you’ll also be able to enjoy in this episode.
